by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp was in the team's starting lineup Sunday against the Astros.

Crisp had been dealing with a hamstring issue earlier in the week, but was able to return to action Friday. He sat out Saturday because the team still had some concerns about Crisp batting right-handed. The team is facing a right-handed pitcher Sunday, so Crisp is back in the lineup. It's unclear how long he'll be held out of action against lefties.
